How about you tell us what the point is then, because situationally, I'd say UNBBF is exactly right. The advantage may be marginal enough that other, bigger factors might be sufficient to counter it, but that doesn't mean that there isn't an advantage to being able to hit for a high batting average.

Situationally, given a constant OBP, a higher AVG does provide more offense on the whole. And generally speaking, a player that hits for a high average has a much, much easier time generating an excellent OBP, so both in the specific and in the general sense, Mazz is right.
